Swim with whale sharks, the largest fish in the world, and visit the incredible Isla Mujeres. A day trip to remember!
Isla Mujeres + Swimming with Whale Sharks Experience
We'll come and pick you up from your hotel and head to the coast of the Riviera Maya, where you can enjoy a breakfast of coffee, fruit juice, pastries and fresh fruit. With our energy replenished we'll set sail in a speedboat across the Caribbean Sea.
As we cruise along, our expert guide will give you information about whale sharks' habits and lifestyles, and when we see them in the water we'll give you the snorkel equipment so that you can jump in and see them up close, if you want to. Sometimes the whale sharks swim with their young, and other times we also see stingrays; it's an experience you'll never forget!
After swimming with the whale sharks, we'll give you sandwiches and drinks on the boat to replenish your energy and then we'll sail to a beautiful coral reef where you'll be able to snorkel once again. After admiring the marine life, we'll head towards the famous Isla Mujeres. We'll anchor down at Playa Norte, the best beach on this Caribbean paradise, and you'll be able to enjoy the crystal-clear water and fine white sand.
At the beach, you'll enjoy a delicious local lunch with prawn or fish ceviche, guacamole and fresh fruit. There is also a vegetarian menu available at prior request. After lunch, we'll return to your hotel in Riveria Maya.
